From daring colors to dashing cuts, Hollywood’s leading men are cutting a swathe through old, outdated ideas about men’s red-carpet style. We asked stylists Michael Fisher, who works with Oscar nominee Sam Rockwell and Grammy host James Corden, in addition to a plethora of stars that includes Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman, left, and Ilaria […]
Passion is found on the road, on the dance floor and even at a local diner in Nashville-based alt-rock band MONA’s music video for “Kiss Like a Woman.”

On March 11th, the 5th annual iHeart Radio Music Awards will be going down in Los Angeles with DJ Khaled serving as the host. Like years past, the show will be honoring some of the industry's biggest names, including Chance The Rapper, Job Bon Jovi & Camila Cabello to name a few, by giving them some special honors. Billboard reports that Chance The Rapper will be receiving the 2018 iHeartRadio Innovator Award, which recognizes his "groundbreaking accomplishments in the music industry and his unsurpassable contributions to social causes." Chance has been very generous when it comes to donating & giving back to his community. Just last year, he donated $1 million to Chicago's public school programs.
Netflix building a studio saved its business. Spotify needs to do something similar: start a label and concert business that both provides a pathway toward profitability and allows it to become an attractive partner to musicians.
While creating his two new releases under the name Darling Lily Gave, Taylor Donskey sought therapy through music, writing many of the tracks during sleepless nights. Cartograph and Lomograph are two halves of a whole, using unconventional instruments like a toy piano and camera, with ideas that are complex but simple, music that's choppy but fully thought out, and lyrics both accessible and a hair beyond what you can imagine. We caught up with the songwriter before his dual album release at Icehouse on tonight to talk about his dark state of mind as he was writing and his unique recording style. City Pages: There's a soft aesthetic to the pieces on this album. What was your state of mind when
Few artists have made more compelling music of more harrowing history than sister-singer/songwriters Shelby Lynne — at The Egg on Saturday — and Allison Moorer. Both have written and sung of loss, grief and survival since witnessing their parents' murder-suicide. Shelby was then 17, Allison 14. They sing like wise southern gothic sibling angels on “Not Dark Yet,” their first-ever album-length project together. (Lynne sang three duets on Moorer's 2003 live album “Show,” and she's sung duets on record with the late Dean Martin, Raul Malo, alt-rockers Live, Tony Jo White, Marc Cohn and others; while Moorer wrote “Thunderstorm/Hurricane” about Lynne.) Lynne's 2001 Best New Artist Grammy for “I Am
The music of Soccer Mommy — aka 20-year-old Nashville songwriter Sophie Allison — often focuses on uneasy desire, sometimes peered at in retrospect and always with a kind of world-weary wisdom. "I want to be the one you miss when you're alone / I want to be the one you're kissing when you're stoned ... I'm clawing at your skin / trying to see your bones," Allison sings on the dreamy "Skin" from her new album, Clean. Clean (out March 2 on Fat Possum) is Allison's first full album of new material after several bedroom-recorded EPs and 2017's Collection, which included reworked demos and a handful of new songs. Its higher production value doesn't abandon the bedroom-pop intimacy that has anchored
Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir compete in the figure skating team event ice dance free dance during the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The “12 Inches of Snow “album may have spent 7 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, but Scott Moir’s Olympic legacy is borderline “World’s Most Interesting Guy” status at this point. If there was a Brolympic gold medal, I’d give it to Scott Moir.
